Why the Price of Tea in China is Important to Me

“What does that have to do with the price of tea in China?” is something I would need to know if I was looking to export my tea to that part of the world. It would also prove valuable for me to know if I was importing tea to North America, from China. If I knew what they charged there, how much they valued, in monetary terms, their Chinese tea, then it would give me an idea of what the Chinese population here would consider reasonable, or anyone else that loves Chinese teas.

All marketers, all businesses, should have an idea of what their competitors charge their clients for similar products. It will give you insight, first of all, of what your competitors are doing and what the marketplace will tolerate. If you’re in the situation where you have no competitors, then you’re going to have to look at comparable products or services to gauge what your offering should be priced at. For example, if I wanted to open a tea shop and there were no tea shops in my city, then I could look at what tea shops in other cities typically charge for Chinese tea. It would be beneficial to see what all the coffee shops in my city charge, as well – locally, they’d be my direct competitors. I’d also like to know what successful tea outlets charge even if they are not local – probably not too far away, within the same province and country would do. I’d also want to make sure that the price I charge offsets my costs of importing the Chinese tea, rent, and other expenses.

I’d have to look at other factors, too. If I’m going to start selling Chinese tea, I want to make sure I’d be successful – else, why give up my current livelihood? So, will people in my city be interested in buying Chinese tea? If yes, then what type of person? Where does this person work, and what areas does this person travel through? So that I know that I am where this person is. This person will pass and peak into my Chinese tea selling business.

And for the record, tea only accounts for 1% of China’s exports. Tea in China is in high demand by its citizens and its price depends greatly on how much is produced. According to www.xe.com, CAD$1 = ~5.57 China yuan renminbi, USD$ 1 = ~6.83 China yuan renminbi. Pu’er tea, distinguished for its red colour and its medicinal qualities, has jumped in monetary value in recent years. Many are collecting Pu’er tea since it gets better with age, it’s cheaper than investing in real estate, and when you sell it you do not have to pay taxes. In 2005, 500g of 64 year old Pu’er tea sold at auction for 1 000 000 yuan; that’s CAN$179 533. 21, or USD$146 412.88! Wow! One cake of 2 year old Ye Sheng Gucha tea, in 2007, cost 260 yuan, or CAD$46.68. A thirteen year old Ye Sheng Gucha tea cost 1 800 yuan, or CAD$323.16. So, it’s expensive.
